This last type of action can be a little slippery, but it's a useful idea if you can grasp it.
If said I pushed Samantha, that would be a physical action, right? Sure.
Now if I said I talked to Samantha, that would also be a physical action... but it's not quite the same: pushed is relatively clear, talked is a little more vague: like you can imagine my mouth moving, but you're not sure how long it goes for, what I'm saying... Talk is a relatively abstract verb compared to push.
And I said I convinced Samantha—is that a physical action? Of course in some way it is, because I must have talked or written to Samantha in some concrete way. But in another way it's not, because the concrete physical action is really hidden inside this abstract verb. At least if I said talked you know my mouth was moving, but persuaded could mean anything: talking, texting, writing, even just raising an eyebrow.
So we might call this type of action interpersonal action to indicate what happens socially and emotionally between people.
For example, take a look at this snippet, about the dynamics between some girls in school.
